I’m Czech and we spend basically entire December baking Christmas cookies and chasing our family away from the boxes full of those cookies… then Christmas comes and we are chasing everybody with plates full of cookies, making them eat it😂😂😂. I know, crazy. But we love it.
One of my favorite cookies are Gingerbread cookies. My auntie is the best when it comes to those. Hers are delicious and also absolutely gorgeous because she sure knows how to decorate them I don’t decorate mine cause I am not that good. To be honest, mine look like a 3 year old got hold of the frosting. I kid you not. But they are delicious and people always ask for more and ask for recipe.
I have tweaked the recipe using my beloved Young Living Essential oils. No need storing the spices anymore. So simple. I use Thieves EO and Ginger EO from the Vitality line (it’s marked for internal use). These oils are absolutely fantastic for our bodies and they taste great too
So here is my Thieves Gingerbread Cookies Recipe
250 g of All Purpose Flour
125 g of brown sugar
65 g of honey
1 large egg or 2 small ones
1/2 teaspoon of baking Soda
4 drops of Thieves Vitality Essential Oil
2 drops of Ginger Vitality Essential oil
1 extra egg, whisked, for eggwash
Mix everything together very well and let the dough rest for about 12 h ( can be in the fridge up to 1 week).
Dust your working space and roll it out, cut your shapes as desired. Preheat oven to about 250C and bake on high for about 5-6 min till brown. When you remove them from the oven, rub it with egg wash right away. It will get the cookies nice and glossy.
Sometimes I like to use this Easy Bake Cookie Cutting sheet. It cooks 24 cookies at once, so it’s super easy and efficient. You can find it on Amazon.
